Iran tried to test Donald Trump.
The terrorist-supporting government in Iran pushed the envelope and the President struck back.
And now a top General gave Donald Trump this report about Iran that left his jaw on the ground.
When Trump kills a terrorist, the mainstream media turns them into a poet.
The New York Times had stronger words for a coach that kept a female reporter out of the locker room than they did for terrorist Iranian general Qassem Soleimani who killed hundreds of Americans.
His death was not some mere “tit for tat” response to the attack on the American Embassy in Baghdad, it was strategically taking out a terrorist mastermind.
His death has made the Middle East a safer place for Americans.
While Iran isn’t happy with his death, they aren’t so insane that they want to escalate tensions with America too far.
That’s why they attacked America carefully so that they wouldn’t kill any American soldiers.
If that is the extent of their response, America has won big.
General Petraeus praised Trump extensively for taking out Qassem Soleimani saying that this was more important than killing Osama bin Laden.
According to the Daily Wire:
Petraeus, who also served as CIA Director in the Obama administration, told Foreign Policy that it was “impossible” to “overstate the importance” of the U.S. military taking out Suleimani.
“It is more significant than the killing of Osama bin Laden or even the death of [Islamic State leader Abu Bakr] al-Baghdadi,” Petraeus said. “Suleimani was the architect and operational commander of the Iranian effort to solidify control of the so-called Shia crescent, stretching from Iran to Iraq through Syria into southern Lebanon. He is responsible for providing explosives, projectiles, and arms and other munitions that killed well over 600 American soldiers and many more of our coalition and Iraqi partners just in Iraq, as well as in many other countries such as Syria. So his death is of enormous significance.”
In a subsequent interview on CBS News’s “Face The Nation,” Petraeus noted that killing Suleimani was “the equivalent in U.S. terms of the CIA director, CENTCOM Commander, JSOC Commander, and presidential envoy for the region for Iran. And- and the most powerful figure in Iran for the solidification of the Shia Crescent and also the operational commander of the actions that they were pursuing.”
“So this is bigger than bin Laden,” Petraeus continued. “It’s bigger than Baghdadi.”
Petraeus noted that the strike also likely helped the United States regain the advantage of having the element of deterrence.
“What has happened here, I think, is frankly, that we lost the element of deterrence,” Petraeus said. “The component of deterrence that was seen as American will. Our drone- 130 million dollar drone is shot down, did nothing significant response. Five percent of the world’s oil production taken out of operation. Numerous attacks on shipping and then attacks on our forces. Ultimately, of course, killing an American and wounding four of our soldiers. So ultimately, the president appears to have decided that it was necessary to take an action to shore up deterrence, to show that we were not going to accept this.”
American strength is what keeps America safe.
Trump is getting more negative media attention for killing a terrorist than Obama did for accidently bombing a hospital.
Trump didn’t make Iran a problem, Iran has been a problem ever since its revolution. Trump has worked to come up with the best solution in a complicated situation.
Do you think that Trump did the right thing to kill Qassem Soleimani?
